Pieces from the Past

Posting some crocheted pieces from years ago.  They were fun to make and fun to wear.

Good Will

 I found this large piece at Goodwill in perfect condition.  I just think it is a beautiful piece.

Harlequin Holiday

 I LOVE MacKenzie Child's products, but can't afford them.  I'm drawn to the black and white checks with the wonderful, crazy attention to detail.  I created a very large centerpiece for our holiday dining table using black, white and pops of red.  This project fell short of my expectations, but I really had fun with it.  The best part for me was the candle holder.  It was a Goodwill find in need of much repair.  It had an uneven bottom and was cracked and chipped.  It was a total labor of love and I'm so happy with it.  I'm actually on the lookout for another one.

Christmas Past

Holidays are over....I know.  Long gone.  However, I am catching up on posts.  This is a Christmas tree made from dozens of different pieces of lace, edgings and ruffles.
Embellished with pieces of vintage rhinestone jewelry and strips of craft pearls.
I don't have a ruffler on my sewing machine, so I lovingly hand ruffled each piece.
This project was right up my alley as far as making messes.  It was a lot of fun.  I saw ScrappinHappy's tutorial on YouTube and couldn't wait to give it a try.  Click HERE for the link to the tutorial.
